Just got it today and would not recommend an air fryer unless it's reheated. Just to give it the proper bottom and to caramelize the crust. After it is cooked then the air fryer is the best way to reheat the pizza. What would be almost better is to grease a cast iron pan that would fit the pizza and cook it that way.
